DASSH response to the Department of Education and Training's National Research Infrastructure Capability issues paper
The Australasian Council of Deans of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (DASSH) argues that the humanities, arts and social sciences (HASS) sector comprises a large part of Australia’s research and innovation system, a system that is transforming due to digital capabilities and the resulting transformation of research practice. The HASS sector must be recognised as having critical needs for infrastructure capability.
The National Research Infrastructure Capability Issues paper identified seven capability focus areas. In this is submission, DASSH addresses the questions pertaining to the capability area, Understanding Cultures and Communities, as well as a question on Data for Research and Discoverability.
